Who is Benito Santos?

One of Mexico’s most well-known womenswear designers is Benito Santos. His ultra-feminine and opulent outfits earned him the title of “Mexico City’s fashion rock star” in Vogue.

Santos is from Guadalajara, a region of western Mexico known for its mariachi bands and tequila.

Santos, who had first majored in medicine, went back to school to pursue his lifelong aspiration of becoming an architect. He began his work in 2008, and in 2010 the actress and model Ximena Navarrete wore one of his creations at the Miss Universe beauty competition. This is when he first came to the attention of the world.

On the Barbie website, designer Javier Mabe, who also contributed to the designs, stated that Benito’s work is incredibly elegant, and intricate, and always has stunning silhouettes. His clothing has a very romantic vibe about it. You can clearly see how passionately he approaches his work.
